Threats

The primary threats to our watershed.

Document Actions
Water Quality
Temperature, bacteria, sedimentation, toxic algae, stormwater, emerging contaminants
Water Quantity
Stream flows, groundwater and increasing demand
Resource Extraction
Logging, mining, road-building, energy development
Urbanization
Increased pressure on water resources, floodplain development, more pavement, erosion, pesticides, toxic metals, sewage overflows, stormwater runoff from industrial and urban development
Public Lands Management
More than half of the 3.3 million-acre Rogue watershed is managed by the federal government, so all activities—logging, mining, road-building, restoration—have a significant impact on water resources.
Climate Change
Climate change will exacerbate pre-existing stresses on ecosystems, including pollution, population growth and urbanization.
